This weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting Liz and Sally. They are cousins who came to my “Pacific Beach Classroom” to learn the Zentangle Art Method. We had tried and tried to find dates that worked for the three of us over the last few months, and it finally happened. It was great to finally put a face to the emails!
Liz had already taken a look at Zentangle on the internet and had created a greeting card using a few tangles – two of which I was teaching them during this session. Sally was excited and eager to learn about this whole process. We tangled the basic “First Tile” using the letter “Z” as our string. We filled the tile with Crescent Moon, Hollibaugh, Bales and Printemps. Our second tile consisted of six more patterns to add to those four. Seems like a lot to accomplish in two hours – we actually went 1/2 hour over as we also had to do some visiting in between, but the results were worth it.
All the tiles turned out awesome. As always, I pointed out that even though we all used the same instructions and same patterns, look how different the tiles turned out. It was a really nice way to kick-off my Easter weekend sharing my passion for Zentangle with Liz and Sally. When they left ….. they signed up for my next class at the Bernardo Winery on May 19th! I’m excited to keep their Zentangle journey’s moving forward, and for them to meet the other tanglers that are a part of the Sunday classes at Icarus. Thank you Liz and Sally … see you in May!
